Uranium Is So Last Century — Enter Thorium, the New Green Nuke

After it has been used as fuel for power plants, the thorium leaves behind minuscule amounts of waste. And that waste needs to be stored for only a few hundred years, not a few hundred thousand like other nuclear by-products. Because it’s so plentiful in nature, thorium is virtually inexhaustible. It’s also one of only a few substances that acts as a thermal breeder, in theory creating enough new fuel as it breaks down to sustain a high-temperature chain reaction indefinitely. And it would be virtually impossible for the by-products of a thorium reactor to be used by terrorists or anyone else to make nuclear weapons.
